One of the areas that stand to reap a lot of benefits from the adoption of blockchain technology and digital currencies is that of freelancing. With many companies around the world now preferring to hire short term contractors and freelancers instead of hiring full-time employees, the number of freelancers in the marketplace is growing exponentially.
While there are a number of established freelancer platforms on the market today, there are a lot of issues with them, including extremely high fees on all transactions.
This is something Gigtricks is aiming to change with their upcoming initial coin offering (ICO).
What are the details about this planned launch?
The Gigtricks platform was initially launched on the 28th of March and they are now planning to have a token sale for their new GBTC token in the near future.
There is set to be three different stages to this sale, with there being a discount as high as 75% during the initial private sale, with a discount of up to 65% for the pre-sale and a discount of up to 25% for the main token sale.
What are the plans for this project?
This is set to be a platform that creates an ecosystem which is blockchain based and will be a comprehensive solution to the current issues that are experienced when using the more traditional platforms for freelancing.
The team behind this project is excited about what the future will hold for them as they believe that they can be a catalyst for the scaling of the freelance economy, as well as helping with the growth, flexibility and transparency of it. Their new GBTC token will be utilised in the platform itself, whether it is for taking skill tests, building a freelancer profile or using the advertisement spaces.
While there has been no official price for this token disclosed, it is believed that during the ICO it will be selling for about $0.248 per token. In the entire ICO period, only 35% of the total token supply is going to be available to investors.
The private sale is set to take place from the 15th of April until the 15th of May. The pre-ICO sale is going to start on the 1st of June and end on the 30th of June, with the main token sale lasting from the 1st of July until the 30th of August.
